Community members of all ages and all musical abilities are invited to roll, tap, and crash in spontaneous musical merriment on a series of gongs positioned along the wooded trails of Hawthorne Hill Nature Center.
Visitors are welcome to warm up inside Hawthorne Hill Nature Center with free hot chocolate. In addition, the first 50 visitors will receive a free ceramic EYSO mug.
This event runs in conjunction with National Make Music Day, which is an initiative that encourages groups across the nation to create music-based parade events on the winter solstice. These events are free and open to anyone who wants to take part. Every kind of musician—young and old, amateur and professional, of every musical persuasion—pours onto streets, parks, plazas, and porches to share their music with friends, neighbors, and strangers.
